if it was just inappropriate or horseplay, why is it as cnn has read in purported e-mails that penn state officials were worried about being vulnerable or possibly not and they didn't report it to any outside authorities. all good questions that we expect to be addressed in some way, soledad. >> i have to imagine there will be some focus on what exactly joe paterno knew and his family has a statement that they put out. they say this. joe paterno did not cover up for jerry sandusky. joe paterno did not know that jerry sandusky was a pedophile. joe paterno did not act in any way to prevent a proper investigation of jerry sandusky. to claim otherwise is a distortion of the truth. he wrote an op-ed about seven months ago before he died obviously and said focus on it was really focused on the legacy of the football program and the school. tell me about that. >> that's right. he wrote this just after the scandal broke and this was meant to be an op-ed piece but according to family spokes people and in the rush of event it is never got published. it was sent to some former football players and t

developments in the race for the white house. it's a virtual dead heat according to the latest cnn poll of polls. the president getting 46% of the vote if the election were held today. mitt romney just one point back at 45%. the cnn poll of polls averages the results of three major national polls conducted in the last 10 days. >>> and another one for the joe biden gag reel. he cracked this joke. >> my mother said -- it was wonderful for children, having your great aunt, your great uncle live with you. those walls are often thin. i wonder how the hell my parents did it. but that's a different story. i know you don't know anything about that. >> you're on tv. >> really? the sex joke? really? really? >> i don't know. >> what event was he at? >> you've got to love the guy. come on. >> maybe he was just talking about they couldn't talk about their family finances. >> clearly. christine going for the financial. >> maybe. >> those unpleasant financial conversations that happen at night in the bedroom. >> there is real value to men with a faulty filter. >> absolutely, absolutely. christine, tha

's untenable, the republican party, the cnn's polling, 63% of minorities are breaking for obama. long term, it is suicide what republicans are doing. so what republicans are going to have to do sort of, you know, for their tea party base is absolutely suicide long-term when you look at the growth of the minority populations, particularly in the battleground states. it makes no strategic sense. >> there are those who say getting booed at the naacp might help romney among some conservatives. do you think, according to cornell's point, he was being intentionally antagonistic? >> first of all, i think it's insulting that president obama did not come himself to address the crowd and address the stark numbers impacting the blk community, whether you're republican or democrat. there are republican naacp members who are lifetime members, who are also there, who also have positions who also want to hear from governor romney, who also want to hear from president obama. that is what is insulting. i'm not sure what issue you take insulting with, if you're talking about the phrase obama care. obama him

of romney overall. mitt romney overall, and take a look at the new cnn poll of polls and it is an average of three national surveys conducted over the last week and a half. it shows president obama at 47% and romney at 43%. the president is on his way right now to new orleans. he gives a speech tonight at the national urban league convention. the group is out with a study on how crucial african-american vo voter turnout will be in some key states. political director mark preston is joining us right now. and mark, how important for the president to not naturally assume that he has the african-american support, but to still work for that support. >> well, fredricka, no question that president obama will get the bulk if not all of the support of the african-americans come november, but the question is how many african-americans will actually come out and vote, and in what state. so when we talk about this, we are looking at specifically at four different states right now. we are looking at north carolina. we are looking at virginia. we are looking at florida. we are also looking at ohio. the

not shown up to the convention what the media coverage would have been like. cnn was atrocious in trying to say the speech was paned, that it was constantly booed, and they had a very one sided review of exactly what this speech was like. exactly how judy was saying, they didn't talk about some of the high points. >> and when george romney was governor, there was a lot more work to do on civil rights in this country. >> the framework around a civil rights has changed a good deal from the 1960s. the issue is no longer elimination of segregation. the issue is affirmative action, welfare, education, social dysfunction, crime. the issues are complicated and different. you can't just pass along and say no separate but equal anymore and call that success. it is no longer obvious that the solutions from the 1960s are all applicable to the teens. and the media -- especially the l.a. times don't acknowledge that. >> also there were attacks on mitt romney for his tenure at bane capital. the boston globe had that big article and it lead to more attacks from the owe bay you ma campaign -- the obama
